Sailor Shirt

This card was my first ever attempt at stamping.  I had been card making for about a year when I watched Joanna Sheen demonstrating some new stamps on TV.  They were her Faye Whitaker Rubber Stamps and I bought three, Kite, Dolly and this one Sailor Shirt.  My first love was always decoupage but these stamps changed that completely, I spend most of my time stamping now and my collection grows by the day.  I think my colouring has improved considerably and my inking around the edges certainly has, I never could get on with Cut-N-Dry so I use blusher brushes now, they give me a much more even effect.

Image and Sentiment:  Joanna Sheen Fay Whitaker Collection - Sailor Shirt
Papers:  NitWit - In the Meadow Collection (free with craft mag)
Embellishments:  raffia from stash

I would like to enter this card into the Shopping Our Stash Challenge 2 - Oldies but Goodies!

Thanks for looking.
